There are hundreds of thousands of stems
LINKING us to everything in the cosmos.
SUPPORTING us and making it possible
For us to be.

Do you SEE
The link between
You and me?

If you
Are not THERE.
I am not HERE.

Thich Nhat Hanh
This is the quote on the “June” page of my calendar. My friend Richard gave me the calendar for Christmas – it’s filled with wonderful quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh.

This, however, resonated in multiple ways.

I see the hundreds of thousands of stems linking us and supporting us as those wonderful links we make as bloggers. The support we share is inspiring. The things we learn are exciting and expansive. The friendships we make are warm and delightful.

We are there for one another's sorrows -- and we've never met face to face.

As bloggers we share our art, ideas, photos, recipes, family stories, and our creativity.

We let others into our homes to share our treasures and interests...

We offer drawings and prizes.

We enter swaps, contests and online parties.

We travel the world through the images posted from travels.

We learn new skills, share the ones we have, and celebrate others’ joys.

Thank you all!

As we speak of links, please be sure to click on one of those off to the right that you haven't visited before. Maybe it'll be just your thing. Maybe not -- but you never know!

As you know, I've been sick and haven't been visiting blogs recently. This post was just so beautiful and such a welcoming one to read on my first day back. And it's so true. I value all the friendships I've made through blogging....and yours is one of them.
